Recently I discovered the joy of answering questions on Stack Overflow. I had a SO account for two years but I didn’t use it until a few weeks ago. This article started after receiving a little feedback on one of my answers.
As you see, I was trying to give a benchmark for those two cases. Yet, it was reported as being an ugly hack and not a try at comparing two solutions. I post this short article here not because I wanted a place to cry that I was criticized but because I desired some advice on what should a good benchmark contain and how to write a proper one.
